    Hi
    I intend to buy a new tacoma and i'm a big fan for this truck
    And i think it's completly perfect except one thing onlt !!
    The electric 4wd system
    So i'm wonder if there is any way to convert it to a stick
    Currently i drive a fj cruiser 6MT and i'm happy with it but i want get a truck
    And the only thing hesitate is what i mention here
    So can just swap the fj cruiser T case to the tacoma or what is the way to do ?

    It might be a little difficult since you have a MT. The MT FJs have full time 4wd.

    I have seen couple of thread here installed the fj cruiser T-case
    Do you think guys it's possible to make the tacoma full time 4WD like the fj
    I'm thinking also about installing the fj cruiser front diff and axels to make the tacoma completly like the 6MT fj cruiser

    It would be allot of work. The auto isn't as daunting of a switch because the transfer cases are the same. I don't know how it will be with the mt.

    you are probably better off to start with a manual taco and the add the fi case
